Sarah Michelson’s rigorous experiments in formalist dance have long deployed reflexive tactics through iconic and mythological, sculptural or decorative representations of the self. Michelson owns and authors her work through the consistent presence of the artist as historicized object. This tactic has functioned as a nod to Michelson’s own legacy, trajectory, geography and economy in the lineage of modern, postmodern and contemporary dance.
“THE Sarah Michelson” exhibits TM Davy’s portraits of Michelson with histrionic overtones as seen in Devotion (2011), a Claude Wompler painting from Daylight (2005), the iconic neon sculptural décor by Charlotte Cullinan for DOGS (2006) and the ready-to-wear tracksuits for Devotion (2011).
